Upcoming Slice of Life in 2022

Have you ever wondered that why we like ‘Slice of Life‘ despite the fact that it’s so realistic and sometimes even painful to watch? This is because a slice of life is a wholesome anime with sweet, bitter, sour, and fun moments of life. In a realistic setting, if someone achieves their goal or finds the love of their life, it motivates the viewers to look forward to the future because, despite all the struggles, there’s still hope. We often end up relating the characters to ourselves, maybe a nerdy character with a secret fandom life, or a quiet guy who hides piercings and tattoos, or maybe just a bubbly character who has their own struggles. So, herein, we shall look at some slice of life anime to come out in 2022.

This genre allows us to relish those small yet loving moments of life, reminding us that the memories of our life journey are more precious than achieving the goal which we perceive as ‘success’. Even a little hobby can become someone’s career, so we learn how to not take things for granted. Slice of Life is a beautiful genre, and now let’s see what are some of the best upcoming Slice of Life anime in 2022!!
